S & G Restaurant – liquor license request

The owners of S&G (the Boudouvas Family) are requesting a liquor license in order to serve beer and wine with their dinners. This is a special situation as the restaurant lies within a certain distance of the St. Alphonsus Church and the Alphonsus Academy school. This required the business to go through the State of Illinois to obtain permission for the city to decide on a liquor license.

State Representive – Ann Williams

State Rep. Williams will give an update on current legislation and her views on the stalemate that is occurring in the fine State of Illinois government.

US Congressman – Mike Quigley

As Congress is currently not in session, Mr. Quigley contacted SLN to request an opportunity to address the SLN membership on Washington D.C. happenings.

Lincoln/Southport/Wellington intersection – Lincoln Hub aka Polka Dot Park: discussion and survey results

The installation of the traffic calming-people space was presented and discussed at the May 2015 SLN Membership Meeting.

At that meeting, though the comments were overwhelmingly negative, SLN felt that a more complete discussion should wait until the configuration could be finally altered based on SSA 27 observations and the neighborhood had a few months to hone their opinion.

SLN will flyer the membership boundaries prior to the October meeting requesting that neighbors respond by email as to whether they are in favor or opposed to the current configuration. Those attending the monthly membership meeting will able to present their opinions and also respond to the Survey in person.

If you have not filled out our survey, please do so soon. We’ll be tallying the results, culling the best comments, etc. on Monday. The survey can be found at http://sstern.us/1JMjF9D

Member Socializing – 7:00 to 7:30 in the Athenaeum Lobby.

The Athenaeum opens its bar for members to purchase some beer, wine or pop before the start of the monthly meeting. Come a little earlier to the meeting for some member socializing. Your purchase helps support the operations of The Athenaeum Theatre.
